SYNOPSIS

A chronological account of the events that culminated in the 1968 student massacre of Tlatelolco, this film intertwines recordings of the protests with still photographs, accompanied by the voice of a narrator who questions the spectator. Thus, it represents the possibility of communicating what happened inside the student movement to a general audience, as conventional media showed a very unrealistic version of this period.
